Excellent food and service. Had to wait a bit because of the Valentine’s Day crowd but it was well worth it.

Shared several dishes between four people. Enjoyed each and every dish. I think the favourite was the Korean Rice Cakes. It’s actually nothing like what you would imagine to be a rice cake, more like tubes of pasta made from rice in a very flavourful Korean sauce. Delicious! Interesting cocktails as well. Only downside to the evening was the large group seated beside us who were very loud and made it difficult to have a conversation. Luckily they left halfway through our meal. Three Boars serves high quality food, innovatively prepared, and we thought it was very good value for the money in comparison to many other places.

We had a reservation for 5:30 on a Friday night. When we arrived we had a brief wait as the table was made ready. We were served quickly, although because it was very noisy, it was difficult to hear the server, so we had to ask several times that they speak louder.
The food was good - my guest had a burger and I had several small plates. It should be noted that the small plates are very small, so after 2 plates arrived, I ordered a third. All the food was tasty and well prepared. In the end, the 3 small plates with dessert was over $40. Be aware.

I was very disappointed in the quality of the food. The hummus was flavorless, the fish tacos were dry and flavorless, and the bread pudding which we had been told was the best in the city, was runny and had very little flavour. Also disappointed that the server did not question why the hummus was barely touched and the bread pudding, all shared between 3, was not finished. We will not be going back.

The waiter was amazing, we found it quiet pricey for what you got though. It's a nice treat, just not somewhere I'd go often.

We went for wing Wednesday, we’ll worth it. Food was hot and served as ordered. Also got the chili, and curried cauliflower. The only thing I didn’t like is we asked for regular seating and were still put in high tables and chairs. Other than that, the food was great, as always.

My date and I first tried to visit on a Thursday evening around 7pm and the restaurant itself was pretty busy we hadn’t made a reservation which we realized was a mistake. The manager informed us that we could have a seat at the bar but that it would be fairly busy and noisy with a 40 person reservation coming in after us so we decided to leave and try again another time. The manager thanked us for thinking of them and gave us two drink coupons to use the next time we came in. How thoughtful! Such a nice touch and made us want to come back and try it all the more!
We tried to visit again and made a reservation for Monday evening and again when we arrived the restaurant was packed but we got a seat! (Definitely recommend a reservation since this place is delicious and apparently always busy!)
When told what the specials were my eyes lit up.. flank steak, mashed potatoes and veggies. Of course I had to get it and it was DELICIOUS. My date had the curry salmon and again AMAZING. The menu isn’t huge but everything on it I believe has so much thought and care behind every menu option it all looks and sounds incredible and not to mention the wine and beer list goes on and on!
Highly HIGHLY recommend this little gastro pub for an everyday dinner, special evening out, or group gathering since it’s apparent they can accommodate to larger groups! Such a good meal I will definitely be visiting again and again! Thank you the glass monkey!!

Out of the many enjoyable meals we have had here, this was the worst. As for he meal, the brussel sprouts were undercooked and tough, the skirt steak was very fatty and tough especially for the price, the fish tacos had a strong fishy odor and the portion size of the hummus was extremely small, maybe 2 tablespoons in the bowl. The waiter was constantly coming back checking on us, which was unnecessary to be doing that so often, several times in less than a minute. My mojhito drink and meatballs we would have to say was the only good part of the meal. Thank you.

Wings were gross and fatty worse I have ever had !! Will not be going back there was no way these were deep fried for a minute. My friend had pork cheeks and they were nothing to write home about either. We didn't complain as our waiter could hardly speak English and none of us could understand what the specials were. So why complain? We just won't be going back or recommending this place!
